A Swansea man is facing charges in connection with the thefts of two air-conditioning units from a Gaston-area church.
Lexington County Sheriff's deputies arrested John Earl Byrd, 46, at his home Thursday on a charge of grand larceny.
An arrest warrant alleges the suspect stole two air-conditioning units Feb. 18 from a church along U.S. 321. The units were placed in the bed of a white pickup truck, according to the Sheriff's Department. A witness reportedly saw the truck drive away from the church shortly after the units were stolen.
A bond hearing was set for Thursday.
